    SOTC - No more trading for a year!

    Like many on the forum, I have become a serial flipper, I have had far far too many! This leads me to not really giving myself time to enjoy what I have and wanting some of the ones I had back. I think I need to stop chasing! So like dry January, I am going to attempt to go dry for 12 months.

    Any way here is what will hopefully see me through.

    Tudor GMT - The second I have had a superb vintage inspired watch for money.



    Sinn 556a - I have had in total 5 variations of this model. I always wanted to be a pilot, at least I can pretend!



    Rolex Hulk - Not my first Rolex but what a stunning watch when the light hits!



    Finally my another watch I have owned twice, I suppose that is the beauty of dealing with great people on here.

    Grand Seiko SBGT241 - something quartz, dressy and super accurate.



    Hopefully these will keep me happy!

    If those don't constrain your purchase instincts then you are without hope. ;-)

    And where are the two Casios I KNOW you've taken in this year??

    Gav, the first step on the road to recovery is admitting the truth to yourself.

    A good selection though the greens not for me, that Tudor really does stand out.

    good luck in sticking with them.

    Good luck. For me I will sell three or four and buy one this year. Definitely will be a quiet year watchwise. Not sure what the one purchase will be - Basel normally tosses a curveball so weíll see.

    If only there was an easy way to do it, we would all give it a go.

    Good luck with it and see you in SC soon 😂

    I am going to be strong and send it back, you have inspired me.

    Luckily there are few of those represented on this forum


    Seriously -- there are three lovely watches in that collection, but that can never be enough

    Nice collection, unless you're planning on leaving the forum for a year I don't see the no trades thing happening. Only way that could work is going cold turkey.

    A lovely and sensibly sized collection you got there now.

    nice collection to stick to, you don't need anymore watches ,but that's not the same as wanting more watches which is were the real test is, I find not having any money to buy more watches helps so buy something else that costs a fortune to keep up to LOL

    SOTC - No more trading for a year!

    I was a serial flipper, itís addictive. But now I have one mechanical watch (sd43) and one quartz (cwc 1983 navy diver). And it feels great, no more worrying about which model to wear, what to keep or sell.
    You can do this and still have fun and variety. If you fancy a change, then change. But stick to Ďone in-one out.í That way,you remain minimalist. And itís rather nice to be free of the whole Ďwhat shall I buy nextí thing.
    The one watch I do really fancy is the new Ed White. On the list, whatever that means. So if you see me selling my latest sd43, youíl k kw I got lucky with the Omega.
    Fat chance.......
    Incidentally, can I put in a good word for the 1983 navy diver; not cheap for a quartz at £900, but it feels great on the wrist.

    I have days like you when I'm forcing myself to cancel subscription on all FB/Instagram tempting content. But I'm to weak to pull the trigger :)

    Well 1 month down and itís gone to pot. Out went my GMT and 556.

    Incoming of a PAM590 and BB58.



    No chasing other watches was a definite pipe dream.

    That was a good spot of business. A Tudor for a Tudor and the Sinn towards the PAM.
